What You Need to Know About BNB Burn

Since the launch of BNB and Binance in 2017, Binance has committed to removing 100 million BNB, or half of the total supply from circulation, through a process called burning. The number of tokens removed is automatically calculated according to the Auto-Burn Formula. This burn mechanism was introduced in the last quarter of 2021. 

Previously, BNB burns reflected the tokens’ usage and revenue generated in the Binance centralized exchange. As a result of the community’s feedback, the BNB Auto-Burn has replaced the previous burn mechanism in favour of a more objective process independent of the Binance centralised ecosystem. That being said, BNB will still continue to burn a portion of BNB Chain’s gas fees in real-time.
